Yes, I know I can save the site to my computer. But that's not enough. The reason I want the original published is because then no one can claim anyone has altered the source code. That's the beauty of an archival link. As for "mirroring," can you explain how that's done? Would I need the technical cooperation of either the former owner or the new owner to mirror?

"mirror" is the copy of the website stored on another server. of course it would have a different www address too. ideally, you would have to contact the owner/author of website to approve the mirroring, and the link to your mirror should be put somewhere on the original site to show that your copy is legitimate. i don't know if it is possible to do in your situation.

As of now, the domain has no content. The site I am discussing is an old one that once occupied the domain, and is only available today on the Internet Archive. Thus, if I were to mirror anything, I'd be mirroring the Archive. This leads to a question:

If you mirror a site, and then the original site disappears or (in the case of mirroring the Archive) is blocked, does the mirror go away too?

why don't you discuss this with former site's owner? this isn't a technical question.

Actually, it is a technical question, but I sense that your interest in this exchange has dwindled. This is fair enough; it's not as if you are getting paid to answer my questions. Thanks for the answers you provided. All the best.
